Recap Scene: Watch The BLOCK with Rosemary Walton – Episode 28

Last night it was dodgy accounting, or something, that Scotty harangued B&C over (they just said yep, whatevs, make it right and we’ll pay it) and by all accounts tonight Sara will be donning her dibber dobber nappies to try and take them down. And we’re in the middle of a cooking challenge, which is in the middle of Hallway/Laundry/Powder-room week, which is a short week because of the Friday public holiday. […]

Recipe Scene: Spiced Blueberry Cake

I found this recipe in the Australian women’s Weekly Simply Bread cookbook. I’ve copied the recipe as is except I renamed it a cake as to me it is definitely more cakey than bready and I adjusted the cooking time. They instructed to cook it for 1 hour and 45 minutes, but it only needs 45 minutes. Also I
substituted the molasses for golden syrup. The cake ahs a beautiful spiced flavour and the blueberries add another really delicious dimension. They suggest it I served with butter, but I really don’t think it needs it, it is a terrific cake as is. It also makes lovely little cakes as well – I often cook this batter in friands tins. […]

Recap Scene: Watch The BLOCK with Rosemary Walton – Episode 26

Not sure if any of you caught the must-see-tv of A Current Affair between the News and The Block tonight but Jess was on it and they were talking about trolls and she read out some of the nasty correspondence she (and Norm) have been getting on Facebook and Twitter. Honestly horrific slurs on their character and appearance, plus we learn that Courtney has been receiving death threats over the pool. Jess, clearly does get affected by the words by real people, but she seems to have a great attitude to call it out and ultimately laugh it off. I’m (touch wood) pretty immune from the worst of the worst trolling and I love Social Media stay safe and be nice everyone! […]

Recap Scene: Watch The BLOCK with Rosemary Walton – Episode 25

There’s been a number of opportunities this week to take a gander at The Gatwick in all its completed glory (if you do a hashtag search or three on Instagram you’ll probably see more than you bargain for with some people uploading photos of stuff that hasn’t gone to air yet)… I took some sneaky snaps but mindful of where the show is at, I’ll only post a couple of little photos that don’t give anything away.

Snap Scene: Satyricon, Max Watts House of Music, Melbourne – 6th September 2018

Without any doubt, only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. And that duo is SATYRICON. Formed in Oslo in 1991, the legendary SATYRICON made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene. With their latest opus ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ released in September 2017 on Napalm Records, the masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal: The resulting album is erratic and destructive, in addition to being raw and pure. It plows. It’s progressive. It mounts an unapologetic sonic attack filled with black metal anthems. […]
